experiment - a-n The Artists Information Company
This project is in tandem with the blog: “Locked down into Paying/Denying Attention”.
I intend to access a beach that has no official access.
I am trying to break the economic exile I have found myself in, as an artist, unable to work for free, without funding. Last year, in the midst of another economic crisis, I was offered the opportunity to participate in […]

“Looking through the eyes of the artist to see life. ” “Expanding the possibilities.” “I want to spend more work (time) on things.” “Becoming is an event, movement is passing in time and space. Becoming is not movement.” “Relationships” “Désoeuvrement” […]
This blog documents a self-initiated, studio-based project of artist development as a response to a rejection to a mentoring scheme.
For my second session I wanted to focus on a practice plate spinning area and used the climbing frame as a curtain with different textured materials draped, framing sections of the structure. From the intro session the blue and red […]
I have been developing my performance practice working with families & children in public & private, domestic spaces. In 2016 I performed #work a performance that involved my family within a domestic set where I first used a spinning plate. This was […]
I printed a page of A4 negatives which I had scanned into a computer and inverted to form positive images, onto acetate. I realised that the combination of the inkjet printer and the shiny acetate meant it would not dry […]
I wanted to explore making drawings using tarnish from metal objects. Silverpoint drawings have a beautiful, delicate quality to them, and also cannot be erased in the same way pencil can. I decided to experiment with making basic marks onto […]

As I have only just started developing my studio practice, I am more in the stage of figuring out where I want me project to go. So I decided to experiment with another piece of work, now bare in mind […]
I had another morning at Meltdowns Foundry on Tuesday, this time applying resin with a brush. I didn’t put quite enough catalyst into the mixture which meant that the afternoon was spent staring at the work and trying to speed […]
The last film I made caused me some frustration. The image kept pixelating, partially I think because I was filming from a moving base (the train) and because the editing software struggled with the data thrown at it. Due to […]
I make films that manipulate natural vision – they distort what the eye would see in some way. Evidently this desire to alter the view is common to expanded cinema and connects it to non-figurative painting. Focus, perspectives, colours, footage […]
Still shots from ‘In search of the unreal n.01’ Fold, bend, cut Draw a line Overlay, conceal, reveal, interrupt, disrupt The shifting, uncertain image This is the litany to run through my mind whilst I make the series of new […]
I’ve found this week quite challenging and mentally draining at times; the work is developing, however I feel overwhelmed by ideas and certain elements of my practice. It could be due to the fact that formative assessments are around the corner […]
Today’s mini-project revolved around the notion of how we remember surface colours and how our eyes respond to light. Batchelor writes about the way in which we see colours as the property of the object. Even in different lighting conditions; […]
I thought you might be interested to see how my experiments/artwork using Halen Mon salts are progressing. I’ve been using the chalk (washed from the salt) as a ground on the surface of glass sheets. I then cover with salt solution […]
